DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE
WEB PUBLICATION SCHEDULE

The Department of Commerce policy is to make all data of any potential use or interest to the public available on the Internet at http://www.doc.gov/ . We have maintained a presence on the Internet since its inception. The Commerce Department disseminates a wide variety of economic, demographic, and scientific data; much of these data are released on prescribed public schedules or updated at stated intervals. Every effort is made to share as much information as possible, while maintaining statutorily required confidentiality and protecting privacy of persons and businesses. See the table below for our priority and schedule information, and Commerce's Information Quality Guidelines describing more fully our information dissemination standards.
